Corn Fritters

Corn Fritters
This recipe is from my first Home Economics class (9th grade) and my brother Brad would eat them as fast as I could fry them up!

1 C. Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. each Salt & Pepper
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 C. Milk
1 + 1/2 tsp. Shortening, melted & cooled
1 + 1/2 C. Corn, drained
Oil for frying
Powdered Sugar

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.  Combine egg, milk and shortening.  Stir in dry ingredients – mixing only until smooth.  Add corn.  Dip Tbl. into hot oil (365°) and then drop spoonful of batter in oil; repeating until you have a full layer of fritters.  Turn to brown both sides.  Drain on paper towels and sift powdered sugar on top.
